Great Quote from Mr Justice Elias on Old Procedures

The 2004 Dispute Resolution Regs were a disaster creating huge piles of litigation, something the government apparently failed to foresee.

In the words of Mr Justice Elias, the President of the EAT in Suffolk Mental Health Partnership NHS Trust v Hurst and ors, EAT 2008

"Rarely can legislation have been so counter-productive. Provisions designed to reduce tribunal disputes have spawned satellite litigation in which arcane and complex points of law have been argued, frequently so remote from reality that they would surprise even the most desiccated Chancery lawyer conjured up by the imagination of a Charles Dickens". have a great section on the new procedures!
